I just couldn't believe she bought it for me! The tattered corners, the handwriting under each button and of course, the gorgeous buttons themselves ~ everything is just so beautiful to me. I keep it in an odd place. It's leaning inside of a large, old doll trunk that is opened on my hearth, just so I can see it all the time. Don't you think they are miniature works of art?
To stop and think about what someone really loves, collects and enjoys is the true secret of gift-giving. Try not to think of what you love, but what do they love. It may be something so inexpensive, simple and easy-to-find. Often we think if it's expensive and flashy, they will really love it, but that's not always the case. If it's thoughtful, true to what the receiver loves and enjoys ~
it will be a gift to be cherished . . .
